How-To: Using System Catalog Reports

If you have an environment with a large number of operating systems, it can be a lot of work to keep track of their versions. You might have update requirements or compatibility issues that apply across your environment, so the ability to get information about one or many OSes and their update levels can be very important.

For Oracle Solaris 10 systems, you can use a System Catalog report to track their patch status and installed OS software:

We put together a how-to that explains how to run the report, and also talks about the things you can do with the report once you've run it, like turning it into a template or an OSP Profile. If you manage Oracle Solaris 10 systems, it's worth a look. The how-to is in the Operate How-To Library, which has quite a few other how-tos about keeping your environment running.

How-To: Discovering a Fujitsu M10 Server

Discovering an asset, whether it's hardware, an OS, or virtualization, is the first step in managing it with Ops Center. Discovery lets Ops Center know what assets are there, and lets it begin to monitor those assets and target them with jobs.

Most assets can be discovered using the discovery procedures in the Feature Reference Guide. However, there are a few types of assets that have quirks that you have to take into account during discovery. Fujitsu M10 Servers, have a few settings that must be configured before you can discover it through the UI. We put together a how-to guide for these systems that explains those quirks, and then walks you through the entire discovery process.

If you're planning on discovering any Fujitsu M10 Servers, this guide has all of the information you'll need. There are also a few other server-specific discovery how-tos in the Deploy library, so take a look.
